For Bigger Data, More Storage

Research progress is increasingly impacted by the available capacity of storage to flexibly exploit vast volumes of digital information. This is a trend across all fields of research, from astrophysics to zoology. The Northeast Storage Exchange (NESE) project, supported by the National Science Foundation, will create a next-generation storage infrastructure specifically targeted at enabling new levels of collaborative research for projects regularly involving petabytes or more of information. In a recent Harvard Gazette article NESE PIs explained why scientists need the expanded storage. Continue reading For Bigger Data, More Storage
